Crews will be working as normal this Bank Holiday Monday so there won't be any changes to waste and recycling collections next week.  

Residents are asked to leave bins, boxes and bags out by 7am on their usual collection day.  

The Household Waste Recycling Centre will be open on Bank Holiday Monday as per summer opening hours, which are Monday to Saturday 8am to 5.45pm, and Sunday 9am to 5.45pm. 

The Steelhouse reuse shop will also be open as usual between 9.30am to 4.30pm.

To find out more about how to recycle in Torfaen.

Residents can get additional recycling bags and boxes and information about what can and cannot be recycled from our customer care centres.

Got any hints and tips about how to reduce your waste or recycle more? Then head over to the Raise the Rate ideas board to share them. 

All council buildings including customer service centres, the customer contact centre and libraries will be closed on Bank Holiday Monday and will reopen as normal on Tuesday 29 August. 

You can receive regular emails, report issues or request items out-of-hours via the council website and app.
